We are all special

'Everyone is special but some are more special than others', to paraphrase George Orwell's 'Animal Farm'. So there's a special day for women, called 'International Woman's Day'. And there's Mothers Day and Father's Day and apparently black people are even more important because recently a whole month was dedicated to Black History Month.

I think it's great that even companies do their best to respect everyone's wishes. For example: by designing sportswear, especially for strict religious Muslim women as shown here:


But I don't get it. Sure, people deserve respect. For one: why is there not attention for why people don't respect others and only talk of consequenses and not reasons?

And two: why not an 'International Clown Day' to show our respect for people who have to wear make up, wigs and weird clothes, just to let other people make fun of them, even though they themselves may have a terrible day?

In other words: why not simply respect ALL people, EVERY day?
